trump isn't the only one calling for a pause and rethinking of our nation's immigration policies.

I read this article by david frum in the atlantic the other day. frum is sounding a warning signal. Ignoring our nation's immigration problems will be at our peril.

We need to make hard decisions now about what will truly benefit current and future Americans.

It isn't a short article, but very well written and thought provoking.

Or at least immigration should be reduced to more reasonable numbers until the above takes place. So many "immigrant's" here that don't or refuse to speak our language while they flaunt and practice their cultures out in mainstream while being a burden to our society. It's as though we have several foreign countries existing within our own.

We need a much lower cap on admitting asylum cases also. Sorry, but we just can't do this anymore. Yes, our country is in a mess demographically, fiscally and in so many other ways. It's spiraling out of control and I'm glad that our president is addressing all of these issues. The cowards on both sides of the aisle have ignored this for decades now.

You mean like turn America into something like some combination of Brazil, the middle east and South Africa and an authoritarian government like china to try to hold it together?

The bigger issue is over population with idiots running the countries into the ground. along with the wealthy 1% and greedy corporations making life unaffordable across the globe. We are not the only country with issues of people dying to get in, but we are the most wasteful of them all. We are very crappy of how we spend our fiscal budget and in deep debt at that. But blame the immigrants- not our congress n administration for wasting globs of money on things that make no sense.

Old white people? Do you actually think that Mexicans in Mexico or the Chinese in China, etc. want their culture, demographics so changed that they lose their identities as nations?

We should allow 0 refugees until we first get our own homeless people cared for. We simply can not afford to take on refugees as long as our own in desperate need are being ignored.
